A songbird mix that contains corn, whole and shelled peanuts
, black oil sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds will be most attractive to jays, cardinals, woodpeckers and other large songbirds. Other mixes can be blended from smaller seeds (millet, safflower
, etc.) for finches and small songbirds. Many birders will create their own seed blends based on their budget and the birds that frequent their backyard.
